WesBurger n' More | Mission District - San Francisco

Melanie Wong | Apr 8, 2016 11:59 PM

Last night a parking space materialized during prime dinner hour on the block where Commonwealth, Mission Chinese Food, Duc Loi, and the new WesBurger n' More are located on Mission when I passed by. Reflexively I grabbed it. I opted for the newcomer, opened officially the night before. I ordered and paid at the counter, got my number, and had a choice of a booth, two-top or bar seating.

Does this neon look familiar? It's rumored to be from the now closed Joe's Cable Car in the Excelsior.

Felt strange not to go for a burger for my virgin visit, but the Nashville Hot chicken was calling me. Ordered as a plate with choice of two sides, the portion of three hulking big boneless chicken thighs for $13 is quite a deal.

Collard greens braised with diced tomatoes featured toothsome leaves cooked to tenderness but not mush. A touch of sweet, a little tangy, and not too salty. This was a great counterpoint to the spicy heat of the chicken.

Mac and cheese was made with pasta shells that were still a little firm. Grainy rather than a creamy style, but good and cheesey. Topped with some extra cheese and bread crumbs, mouthfuls of this also helped quell the fire.

The buttermilk fried chicken was extra crispy from what seems like some cornmeal in the batter. Juicy thigh meat, crunchy crusting, and fiery Nashville hot spicing set off a cascade of endorphins to satisfy and anesthetize from the pain.

There was a steady stream of customers and the kitchen seemed to have no trouble keeping up with the flow. Burgers passing by looked great, as did the various tater tot appetizers. For what sounds like a meatlover's dream, WesBurger is surprisingly vegetarian friendly, offering a homemade vege patty as a sub for any of the burger combos, a portobello Reuben, and a cauliflower wedge. With wine and beer as well, this should prove to be a regular gathering place for eaters of every stripe.

Who else has tried it?
